Psst... It's February 12!

It's hard to believe it's been an entire month since we kicked off the Take Twelve photography challenge! If you're new to the concept, take a minute to read about it all here. It's definitely not to late to join in—a calendar year is a calendar year whether you start in January, February, or July!


A few reminders as you pick up your cameras:

+ There are no rules! Use whatever camera—or combination of cameras—you like.


+ Stop in to check out what beautiful photographs and scrapbook pages are filling up the 2012 Take Twelve Flickr Group! Better yet, why not become a member yourself and share your Take Twelve photography challenge results, too? Check out two beautiful pages that were added after the January round:

+ Want to quickly connect with other Take Twelve photography challenge participants? Use the hashtag #take12 on Twitter or Instagram to see what others are up to on February 12.


+ If you bought the Take Twelve Guided Inspiration Kit don't forget to check the February list of fun photo ideas! You'll never be at risk of taking the same photos over and over every month with your photo checklists in hand... unless you want to, of course. It might be fun to include a photo each month in the same location! If you didn't buy the kit, what are you waiting for? Go ahead, go grab it—we'll wait!


+ Do you have a little more time or creative energy to pour into your photos today? Try this month's themed project, found in the Take Twelve Guided Inspiration Kit. (Of course, you can always take twelve everyday photos and complete the themed project—remember, no rules!) Check out what an amazing job Ella Friend Audrey Neal did with January's themed project, all about collections:

You can see Audrey's photos in more detail in the Take Twelve Flickr group. They're fantastic! I already warned her to lock up those globes and cameras, ha!


Whether you plan to add your pages to already established albums or to create a special album or mini-album for your Take Twelve pages, why not create a cover page to tie them all together like 2011 Ella Friend Valerie Mangan did? What a great idea!
